Arriving past mid-night in Melbourne

by t5776

Hi, I have booked an Airasia flight to Melbourne landing approx half an hour past midnight...grateful if any advise could be offered on the following :-

1. The website for AAsia has mentioned arriving in MEL airport...any idea which part of Melbourne e.g Tullamarine or Avalon or else where ?

2. Are there any buses or taxis from the airport to town at this hour ? If so what are the charges like ?

3. Are there also any package tour from the hotel e.g GOR, Geelong, Philip Islands ? If so, what are the likely cost it would be ?

TQ.

The Skybus goes every hour after 12.30am and will take you into the city $16.00 one way I think - you will then need to get a taxi. You will be flying into Tullamarine on AirAsia.

You will be able to get package tours try one of the following for info:
http://www.visitvictoria.com OR http://www.thatsmelbourne.com.au

You can take a train to Geelong and wander around fairly easily using local buses and/or taxi's.

Tours could be anything from about $60.00; try the following for Phillip Island; http://www.penguinislandtour.com.au Your accom or the Melb tourist info will have lots of ideas for you.

There are many tour companies maybe someone else can recommend one - I usually have a car when I visit Victoria.

All taxi drivers are not local so if you use the taxi, print the map of the city and mark you hotel there. I would have been in a trouble last time if I wouldn't known the city at all.

I recommend visiting Mornington Peninsula and Red Hill.

I agree about taxi drivers, many these days have no idea where they have to go, it would be good if you have the address of the hotel you are staying at,and there is a surcharge after 10pm and you may be asked to pay upfront. Some drivers dont ask for payment first, but be prepared.

Enjoy your stay in Melbourne

Taxis are supposed to ask for payment in advance late at night. It is best to use cash and allow AUD80 for a late night taxi from the airport to a city hotel. Personally I would take Skybus if its timing suits.
Beware though. If you are using a card only let them use the machine - don't let them tell you the machine is broken and they have to hand swipe it. This is a scam. In any case if using a card write down the taxi registration number and the drivers name and number just in case. Scams seem to be getting more frequent with cabs these days.

Travellers to Melbourne are often surprised by how far the city itself is from the airport. I've had international friends of mine complain about the taxi fare. Skybus is very easy and gets you to the middle of Melbourne - certainly the best option price wise!

Travel Tips for Melbourne

St. Kilda

by maryamy

A visit here is a must, as this ex-red light district is full of life, and buzzes even on christmas day. Melbourne has an attractiveness that few big cities do, and that is the feeling of real life, closeness to nature and space, without the distances of the cities of the USA.

12 Apostles

by Steve-H

It was a bit choppy when we arrived. A lot of ships have been wrecked on this bit of coast over the years and you can see why. Despite the strong winds the chopper tours were still taking the Japanese tourists out for a closer look, we ran around taking a few snaps and then headed back to the relative warmth of the camper van. Weather here is changable, keep something warm/waterproof to hand.

Subaru modified car

by l_joo

So many Subaru Imprezas in Melbourne, most of these cars had loud engine and big noisy exhaust system, very obvious on the street, suitable for underground racing maybe? Anyway I saw a Subaru modified car, very beautifullu done, the engine I don't know but outlook was so impressive, almost like a Le Mans car.

four seasons in one day!

by willy_wonka

they say melbourne has the 4 seasons in one day, and how true it is! sunny and warm in the morning, cloudy and cold by lunchtime, it is really unpredictable!

be sure, no matter how great the weather looks, to have a light cardigan/jacket on you. not nice to get caught out in the rain/cold!

Chinese Museum

by arianne_1504

If you're a bit of a history buff, this place is definitely worth the visit. Their website describes the museum as "An exciting range of changing exhibitions, heritage tours and public seminars are some of the ways by which the Museum shares the past, culture, and values of Australia's Chinese community" and this is definitely on the mark. Featuring permanent displays and special exhibitions. Don't forget to check out the gift shop.

10am - 5pm everyday (Closed Good Friday, Christmas Day & New Years Day)

General Admission Adults: $7.50 Children & Concession Card holders: $5.50

Special events and exhibitions: Additional price to General Admission may apply.
